I was able to play with the same configuration and settings with an earlier version of GNIF.

But speaker-test works.

I might try to downgrade the driver and see if this works.

Ok. In my experience mplayer is a better test of if your audio is working than the in-built ALSA tools. My guess is you have ALSA issues. The other option is your DEV setting is wrong (ie mine is DEV=1 but a lot of other people use DEV=3).

That is to say it often works initially with sound on the GUI - but the moment it switches to passthrough (I guess) it fails with the same "failed to open audio device" error. The 290 and below drivers work fine for me. I've also seen Fernetmenta (iirc) report problems with the 295 driver series and his suggestion was to back off to 285 - admittedly that was video rather than audio related as I recall.

Perhaps it is something in Ubuntu. I run a Gentoo system. It could also be something in your asound.conf (do you have one?)
